Food-Grade Biodegradable Liners & Films
With the rising global demand for eco-friendly plastics, Plascon is proud to offer biodegradable plastic bags and film that provides the same strength as traditional bags, contains no toxic by-products, and does not require special handling. We manufacture biodegradable film into gusseted box liners, flat poly bags, and tubing. Our liners are made from LLDPE, HDPE, and blended PE depending on your needed application.
Our innovative and environmentally-safe material provides a number of advantages including:
- The same strength and tensile properties as traditional plastics.
- No toxic by-products.
- Does not use heat, light or mechanical stress to break down.
- Does not require special handling (unlike PLA and oxo-degradable products).
- Does not contain heavy metals (unlike most oxo-degradable products).
- Specific formulations that meet FDA requirements.
CUSTOM SIZING & BLENDS
The width of biodegradable film ranges from 6” wide to 50” wide, with the film thickness between 0.8 mil to 5 mil. As a manufacturer, we can offer clear and colored film options, and also include a one-color company logo to your liners to promote your company’s eco-friendly efforts.
WHAT MAKES PLASCON’S PLASTIC BAGS & LINERS BIODEGRADABLE?
To make our biodegradable plastic bags and films we utilize an additive which, when combined in small quantities with any of the popular plastic resins, renders the end products biodegradable while maintaining their other desired characteristics. The resulting plastic products exhibit the same desired mechanical properties, have effectively similar shelf-lives, and yet, when disposed of, are able to be metabolized into biomass by the communities of microorganisms commonly found almost everywhere on this planet.
Our biodegradable plastic films and bags are designed to biodegrade in a variety of situations including:
- Home Composting
- Commercial Composting
- Buried in, or in contact with the soil
- Erosion / Agricultural netting & film
However, our bags will not degrade when kept in a warehouse, on store shelves or in your home or office.
